From an early age I could be found with a pencil in my hand.
Even now, whilst on the phone, thinking of a crossword clue or just sitting and relaxing I sub-consciously doodle!
This love of drawing led me, after finishing school, to Art College where I completed a four year Diploma in Graphic Design.
I’ve since worked as a commercial artist in various design studios and drawing offices. A combined love for painting and nature, however, has been the catalyst behind my own artwork and over the years, I’ve sold paintings through several private galleries both in the UK and overseas and have undertaken many commissions. My painting style tends to vary from quite loose and free to very tight and detailed depending on the subject matter. Oil paint has become my preferred medium as it suites both disciplines.
